Caption: Lulworth Cove, UK, aerial photograph. This is a coastal erosion feature on the south coast of England. It was formed when the sea broke through the hard coastal limestone rock, exposing the softer clays and sandstones a few dozen metres behind. These are eroded far more quickly than the limestone coastal rocks, causing the formation of the cove. At the back of the cove is a band of chalk, also more resistant to erosion than the clays and sandstones. Over the next few thousand years the cove will widen far more than it will increase in depth.
